It is very distressing that people will intentionally LIE about this school simply because they are friends with the principle. Yes, there is a huge safety issue for the kids at this school. And the person who said someones feelers must be hurt is probably one of the parents who's child is doing the ...  Read more

My kids go to Benson Schools. I am very involved in the programs at BMS. There are isolated incidents in every school. The Principal is amazing and treats kids with the upmost respect.

My kids' grades have improved since coming to Benson Middle School. The 6th grade teachers keep the kids focused; the kids never turn in homework late. I think having men teachers in 7th grade helps keep the kids who might become rebellious from doing so. Mr. Sherman is an amazing Math teacher!

I have seen many schools around the area and have found Benson Middle School to be one of the highest in quality. From the moment you walk on campus you feel at home. Clean campus, fresh cut grass, and friendly staff and students. In my interactions with the teachers I know they have the best interest ...  Read more

I see by the previous comment that the school did NOT improve with the pricipal change. Probably worse. So disappointed in the admin. The bullying is not only the nasty students but from teachers as well. No support for the kids that need it.
